Stillbirth Clinical Care Standard Launch

  • The Stillbirth Clinical Care Standard helps support stillbirth prevention and bereavement care after perinatal loss.
  • Stillbirth is a tragic and profound experience that affects more than 2,000 families in Australia every year.
  • Despite being the most common form of perinatal death, the experience of stillbirth is often hidden due to stigma, taboo and a culture of silence.
  • The rate of late-gestation stillbirths (after 28 weeks of pregnancy) in Australia is almost 50% higher than in countries with the lowest rates worldwide.
  • Strategies can improve the chance of a woman giving birth to a healthy live-born baby.
